Biography

Eleanor caught the travel bug after five months of volunteering and exploration in east Africa. Since then, she hasn’t looked back, making regular trips abroad to some of the world’s most far-flung destinations. Early experiences included a year of teaching in a small city in China, before strapping on the backpack to travel the country in detail, even pausing to live in Xian for a few extraordinary months. In fact, it was this trip that ignited Eleanor's passion for Asia, a love affair which later saw her walk the Great Wall, delve into the ancient traditions of Japan in Kyoto, explore Vietnam from top to toe and go hot air ballooning over Bagan in Myanmar. Then, having already turned her new-found Asia expertise into a career in travel, she jetted off again, this time to Australia. Here, a working holiday visa gave her the chance to explore the length and breadth of the country, before she hopped across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand where, among other highlights, she cycled the Otago Rail Trail, flew a plane over whale-dotted seas in Kaikoura and learned the art of curling at the only indoor rink in the Southern Hemisphere. And, that’s not all, as Ellie’s most recent adventures have taken her to Canada and on a four-month jaunt around Latin America.
